I'm not sure if this is an appropriate place to advertise a Youtube playthrough - if not, please let me know and I'll delete the thread.
I just wanted to post a little info about a playthrough I'm recording - perhaps someone will be interested in seeing it when they're bored and have nothing better to do :+).
In the playthrough/let's play I'd like to focus on showcasing everything the game has to offer. I want to attempt to provide pleasant commentary with an emphasis on being informative and showing a lot of the lesser known events in BG games - easter eggs, rare dialogue options, influence of high charisma or charm spells, etc.
It's meant to be a completionist playthrough where I attempt to explore all areas, finish all quests, do all encounters and show as many unique conversations/points of interest as possible. The only limitations to that idea that I set for myself are:
1) I don't have to recruit every single NPC and complete their personal quest;
2) I don't have to be inconsistant in my choices - I'm playing a Good-aligned character who isn't going to do things the Evil way (with one exception in BG2:SoA to get the silver pantaloons).
The playthrough is also supposed to be of a rather difficult nature, provided by a big install of SCS. I also showcase a lot of content from the BG1 NPC Project mod and engage in some RP.
Another important element of the whole thing is that I'm playing on version 1.3. so there's no Siege of Dragonspear content - just the classic Trilogy.
The episode #00 provides a lot of details to all that I've mentioned, but it turned out to be really lengthy. You might want to navigate through it by using the timestamps in the description (to listen about particular topics I discuss) or simply skip straight to the gameplay in episode #01.
I haven't uploaded all of the recorded and edited episodes yet, but I think there are some entertaining moments in there. For example, episode #02 features a certain upset by Tarnesh and there's a spectacular performance by a gibberling in episode #04 who manages to one hit kill my protagonist with a crit :+). My monotone voice gets better from episode to episode, so bare with me as I learn to be a better Let's Player and figure out this whole recording, edit and entertaining thing!
Here's the link to the PLAYLIST

Of course, I would very much welcome any feedback, if anyone can be bothered to post some. Thank you in advance and, hopefully, have fun watching!
